Senator-elect Tammy Baldwin was among the most progressive members of the US House of Representatives during her tenure as a Wisconsin Congresswoman. Wisconsin's senior Senator Ron Johnson is a Tea Party idiot. But so far, everything is hunky dory! Baldwin is confident that the two can work together in Washington, and Johnson also believes the two can work together... if Tammy Baldwin — who graduated from Smith College with a double major in mathematics and government — can learn how to understand numbers.
Johnson, who in the past has tried to cut funding for Planned Parenthood and then urged women who can't afford birth control to "Google it" (first result of the Google search query he recommended? Planned Parenthood. Whoopsie-daisy!), is a numbers expert, you see. He knows how much things cost and how things work. From the AP,
